Central Sophomore point guard Devin Perry is expecting to build upon a good freshman season and start making his name known across Louisville and the rest of the Commonwealth. After a freshman year where Perry averaged 7.2 points and 2.5 rebounds per game for the Yellow Jackets, he was pleased with his first year playing for Coach Bibby, "It was good to start varsity as a freshman in probably the toughest region in the state. It taught me a lot about myself and I was happy with my individual performance. We won the district but had a disappointing loss to Ballard in the region tournament." Devin defined his game as "a point guard who likes to get others going and involved. I'm a pass first player whose strengths are passing and handling the ball but I need to improve on being more vocal and getting stronger."

Perry spent his 15u season playing AAU with the Louisville Legends and says he had a good year for the most part. One thing he looks to take from the AAU season into his sophomore year is being more vocal as a leader on and off the court. With school starting this month, Devin has started to shift his focus on to leading his team back to Rupp Arena in the spring, "Some personal goals I have for my sophomore season is to make all district and all region and hopefully make it to state. Perry is part of a talented young core that is likely to push for a 7th region title over the course of the next few years. Don't sleep on Central in the 7th.
